Hi everyone. Hope you are all feeling well and wrapping up with this cold weather.
I haven't been on this site before but as my title says I'm frustrated. I have suffered with Fibro since my teenage years which I realise now but was finally diagnosed in 2009. I've been put on various medication and the recent one is Gabapentin. In April last year I started to get a really painful hip and had fallen a couple pf times but thought no more of it. The GP kept saying its inflamed sac in the hip. I went onto have a couple more falls again landing on my hip. Long and short is I have been diagnosed with Facet Hypertrophy and Spinal Stenosis which I have had an epidural for but with little success. I have contemplated using a walking stick as I use my Nordic stick when I try walking with my husband and it helps a little but as I am still trying to work part time and my family are judgemental I'm not sure what to do. I need something to help me as I am so tired and exhausted with it all and feel so low that I can't even get excited about Xmas even with a beautiful 1 year old daughter. Sorry to be a whinges really not normally but am frustrated. Sorry for the long waffle just needed to vent as have little family Or friends so although work am isolated xx
